where i don‘t meet you

Charlotte Clermont • CA 2020 • 4‘ • DCP • no dialogue

Shot on Super 8, where i don‘t meet you is based on its own physicality by the means of a DIY hand processing technique, where the film‘s materiality is treated not only as a medium but also as a subject. Its narrative structure reflects a work on film deconstruction, which joins an unpredictable and experimental universe.
